Enjoy a quick view through the not so new kit of YF-23 by HobbyBoss. It is a wonderful kit in 1/48 scale of this iconic Black Widow II aircraft.

The Black Widow definetly flew. And according to some even better the the Raport. Very nice to see a modern kit being made of it.

I always prefered this one over the F-22.

Sadly my opinion wasn't considered.

Yeah, thank u Borg!
according to me - it`s just incomparable to the Raptor, cause the Raptor is simply unmatched. The BWII was just extraordinary in terms of shapes, specs, etc, something different.
PS: it`s a rather old kit from a couple of years ago.

))) like choosing the greatest evil between them all... I think the biggest difference was between the terms "conventional" and "different". So i undoubtly love the Raptor, but the Black Widow adds to my inconventional will to be different. This plane was perhaps the only one to fly with just 4 wing surfaces. And when i saw how it should look like, like F-23A, there was no doubt about this kit...
